Thanks SteveI for letting me add my input to this discussion.
Your input is indeed welcome
Most people hesitate to send stuff overseas, simply because it seems like it's riskier. And, tell you the truth, it IS slightly riskier, because of how long things can take. There are reports on these boards of shipping taking a MONTH. For most of us, it just isn't worth the hassle, especially since if something goes wrong, it's a lot harder to renegotiate things.
That being said, I personally don't have any qualms to buying/selling from trusted internationals... as long as precautions are taken.
